Sleepy Jack - IconSony Ericsson today announces that SilverTree Media – award-winning creators of this year’s critical and commercial smash hit Cordy – is launching their brand new title Sleepy Jack exclusively on Xperia PLAY.

This stunningly rendered arcade-style game sees players guiding Sleepy Jack on a colourful, super-charged journey through his dreams. Every night as Sleepy Jack falls asleep, his impressive imagination takes over and players can use his rocket pack to journey, collect, dash, dodge and shoot through his wild dreams.

Sleepy Jack was identified as an Android game to look out for when it was announced at E3 earlier this year. It was also demonstrated in Beta during Gamescom in Cologne in August, where its amazing graphics, engaging characterization and addictive gameplay drew enthusiastic acclaim from attendees.

Tim Harrison, Head of Content Marketing & Strategy at Sony Ericsson commented, “SilverTree Media has created some of the most exciting and innovative new Android titles, first with Cordy and now with Sleepy Jack. This latest addition to our ever-growing Xperia PLAY portfolio combines immersive graphics and compelling gameplay and will prove a popular new title for gamers of all levels.”

Nate Smith, CEO of SilverTree Media commented, “We have been working hard on this follow up to Cordy and can’t wait for people to get their hands on it. We hope that they enjoy playing Sleepy Jack just as much as we have loved developing it on the Xperia PLAY.”

Xperia PLAY has proved to be a great platform for games developers, with 80% of owners playing games at least once per day (eight times more than on other leading smartphones). 75% of downloads being premium paid for content against the maximum industry average on other handsets of 25%.

Sleepy Jack launches this week and will be exclusive to Xperia PLAY for one month.
